CBS News writers will decide on Thursday to strike, in a move that will cripple both television and radio operations. The writers are part of the Writers Guild of America East, who is representing those who write for television dramas and comedies.
The current strike has now entered their second week as they shaken the entertainment industry. CBS News union representative Sherry Goldman has said that the writers have been working under an expired contract.
“CBS News is prepared for the possibility of a writers strike. We will continue to produce quality news programming for our viewers,” CBS said in a statement released. A spokesperson for the company would not comment any further.
